Athletes learn to focus on their run, jump, or throw, blocking out the people around them, but no competitions could take place at all without the officials and volunteers of the ESAA championships. Success in athletics is usually measured in statistics. Before you consider the attainments of the champions who started their careers at the ESAA finals, have a look at the achievements of the teachers and enthusiasts who make the championships happen in the first place.

Over one July weekend, the stadium will witness the performances of:
• 1700 competitors
• 200 officials
• 250 volunteers
• 17 medical staff
